We are proud to share with you that Dawn Meats has been announced as a joint winner of the Diversity & Inclusion category at the Bord Bia Food and Drink Awards 2019. This is the first time that this category has featured at the biannual Bord Bia awards, and it recognises an organisation that has illustrated its commitment to the implementation and promotion of a robust and engaging Diversity & Inclusion strategy.

We recognise that our people are the key to our ongoing success and that by their actions, they can greatly influence the future of our business. Our employees are a diverse, inclusive and empowered team striving to make a difference through their everyday work. We would like to take this opportunity thank everyone for their hard work and ongoing dedication.

CEO Niall Browne commented “This award is testament both to our diverse workforce and the diversity of the markets we serve. As a global business, we want to continue to attract the best talent from all areas and backgrounds. Our diversity and inclusion strategy ensures we can do that by maintaining an environment that fosters mutual employee respect and promotes productive relationships. I’d also like to extend my congratulations to Diageo, a worthy winner and partner in the Open Doors initiative and we are pleased to be recognised alongside them in this category.”

The judging panel remarked that “As an organisation, Dawn Meats has clear D&I aims and objectives. Implementing detailed and comprehensive policies and process, they are proactively responding to the demand of a global customer base, the changing dynamics of the Irish and European employment market and the demand of their own shareholders. Their ongoing commitment to D&I sets clear and commendable precedents for all Irish businesses to follow.”
